Google Play Music Family Plan Now Available For Up To Six Members

Google has added a family plan for its Play Music subscription service , allowing up to six family members to stream music at the same time. In addition to the hardware/operating system requirements you’ll need one primary account (which if you’re reading this tutorial will likely your account) that has an authorized credit card on it. This account will serve as the Family Sharing organizer” account.

This meant that every device you wanted to share your apps with (so, let’s say, everyone in your family could play great digital board games like Ticket to Ride or Carcassonne ) ended up configured as if it was a secondary device of the primary account holder.

And that awkwardness is considerable (web play of Google Play Music default to the first account you sign in with, like all web products if you use multiple accounts you will have a song and dance of multiple sign-in every time you try and use them).

You may have it worked out yourself, however people that have already poured in hundreds of dollars for their GApps account and play music subscriptions, not to mention any other purchases they may have made, may want a way to keep it without getting scammed.

Each member of an Apple Music Family Membership gets unlimited access to the entire Apple Music catalog, music recommendations tailored to their personal music tastes, and access to their own iCloud Music Library, which makes it possible for them to listen to their music on all of their favorite devices.
